(only) when someone says - never ever over their entire (drumming) life- have they, while playing, broken a stick, that strikes me as curiousI certainly don't agree with the notion that if you aren't breaking sticks - "you aren't working hard enough on stage".
wait before you hang your head in shame... ; )Yup....I'm a sissy drummer. I don't break sticks.
I used to break LOTS of sticks in high school marching band and drum corps, and I used to use 2S and 3S sticks. Since then, I really don't break 'em.wait before you hang your head in shame... ; )
Are you saying "you've never broken or had a stick break on you"?
It's not (always) one's fault, it could be the stick itself too, remember
there's some leeway involved in this..; )
